    Question Beginner Acid 7 Pro Questions

    Hello,

    This is my set up

    A Shure SM-57 mic
    An Emu 0202 USB 2.0 Audio Interface
    Sony Acid 7 Pro

    I connect the mic to the interface via XLR. I connect the interface to my computer via USB.

    1) When I try to make recording in Acid 7 Pro, the recording only records and plays back in the left channel. I have tried toggling the mono/stereo setting on my interface, but that does nothing. How do I make the sound record and play back through both channels?

    2) How to I adjust the EQ of my recordings? I simply want to bass up the recording and adjust the treble to make it sound better.

    Once again, I am new at this, so step up step instructions for both questions would be great.

    Thank you!

    when you create a new track in acid, make sure it's a mono track, not stereo... also, what happens when you play some of the loops in acid?

    Thank you for responding. That makes sense, but how exactly do I change it from stereo to mono?

    Thanks!

    Hi there! When you create a new audio track, I expand the track view so I can see the volume, pan levels and the input path. If you click the "input" button you should see either Mono or Stereo, put your mouse over the Mono and you should then see a pop up window that shows all your available ports. Select the port you have your mic connected to and that's your mono signal you should hear it out of both speakers. If you want to listen to it stereo, I like to record the mono track then right click - duplicate then hard pan track 1 left and track 2 right to give it that "stereo" fill.

    Hope this helps!
